People strolling, boats docked at Toronto Waterfront


This stretch of the Lake Ontario shoreline is full of fun and activities for all seasons, and all ages. Its central location puts it in easy reach of a number of downtown hotels, so don’t miss exploring the neighbourhood’s unique city-meets-lakeside vibe.

Don't miss:

  • Fun for the family at Sugar Beach, and in winter there’s skating at Paul Quarrington Ice Rink
  • An afternoon at one of Canada’s best contemporary art galleries, The Power Plant
  • The biannual Tirgan Festival, which celebrates Iranian culture, or the annual Redpath Waterfront Festival to see historic tall ships sail into the city 
  • Live classical music at the Toronto Music Garden, which was designed in collaboration with renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma 
  • Grabbing your sneakers and taking a waterfront walk. If a carb craving hits, stop at BeaverTails and try one of the popular dough pastries

BOUNDARIES: The Lake Ontario waterfront. Queens Quay, between Bathurst and Yonge Street.

PUBLIC TRANSIT (TTC): Union Station, 509 or 510 streetcar.
